After Ghost is launched, the user interface appears and before any selections are made you get the error 15210.
Altiris' deployment solution alters the MBR in such a way that during boot, the machine goes through a "Bootwork routine" (Altiris terminology) that has the machine check a central server for software updates and installations. This alters the MBR in such a way that Ghost does not recognize the MBR as the correct format.
The MBR must be reinitialized. To do this, use a utility like GDISK (included with Ghost Solution Suite) or FIXMBR.
- Copy the file Gdisk.exe to a bootable floppy disk.
- Boot the computer to DOS using the boot disk.
- Enter the following command:
GDISK # /MBR
Note that the symbol # needs to be replaced with the disk number.
